Details

MODBURY BARRACK ROAD SX 65 SE (west side) 2/63 The Barracks 11.9.91

- II

Former infantry barracks, with gatehouses. 1794. Rubble stone walls varying from 2 m to 3 m in height and enclosing a long rectangular opening narrowing to a rounded point at the north end. Wall fairly continuous, at south end to Barrack Road has pair of lodges in one storey with hipped slate roofs, 2 blank segmental-headed recesses to cills to each, and flanky square piers to pair of wood gates. South wall is mainly lower than remainder and has large opening, about 8 metres wide, at centre. The south west corner contains an L-plan one storey house with hipped slate roofs, modified in the C20, but important to hold the corner of the enclosure. On the west side are four large external square buttresses with a further 2 near the south end of the walling. These Napoleonic barracks, or more probably an enclosed camping ground, now (1987) filled with new housing, but the containing wall is reasonably complete, and is an important historical reminders to the town.
